Peggy Lee

40 mostly unreleased recordings from the legendary 1951-1952 radio program of the great singer, who would have celebrated her 100th birthday last year. "Music is my breath," reads the tombstone of Norma Deloris Egstrom, better known by her stage name Peggy Lee. Throughout her seven-decade career, Peggy Lee helped define the role and prestige of "singer" in and of itself. Her smooth, captivating voice continues to move listeners - Peggy Lee has had over 100 chart hits, beginning with" I Got It Bad "(1941) and ending with the posthumous hit" Similau "(2017). Among the countless musical accolades bestowed upon Lee are 13 Grammy nominations, a GRAMMY in 1969, and a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995. Born at a time when women were struggling for equal rights - which continues to this day - and with the heavy burden of a traumatic childhood, she was a true pioneer and a true "survivor." What she accomplished as a woman and as an artist is nothing less than extraordinary. She recorded more than 1,100 masters and over 50 original albums. Her total number of radio broadcasts is over 800, and her television appearances exceed the 200 mark. She is best known for the song "Fever."
